Shear Stress in a Solid Shaft Equation
When torque or twisitn loading is applied to a cylindrical shaft, a shearing stress is applied to the shaft. The shear stress varies from zero at the center axis to maximum at the outside surface element of the shaft.
The shear stress in a solid cylindrical shaft at a given location:
σ = T r / Ip
